730 await adoption from Angel Tree
More than 730 angels await adoption on this year’s Angel Tree.
There are four locations to find the names of children for whom you can buy Christmas gifts: Decatur Mall (by Belk’s), Hartselle Wal-Mart Supercenter, Decatur Wal-Mart Supercenter and Cracker Barrel in Decatur (after Thanksgiving).
The Salvation Army screened the families to ensure the children were from low-income homes. All angels are 12 years old or younger.
Each identification tag gives the child’s age and clothing sizes.

Seminar to help children survive
The Wheeler Wildlife Refuge Association will present “Lost in the Woods,” a child survival program by the North Alabama Search Dog Association, on Sunday afternoon.
The free event includes nine survival tips for lost children. In addition, the presentation includes experiments to demonstrate these survival tips, a search-dog demonstration and tips on what to put in a child’s emergency survival kit.
The event — one of the outdoor activities leading to Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge’s 70th anniversary celebration in September — is at 2 at the Visitors Center.
